About this tree:

The ficus retusa is known for its amazing colors in the trunk as well as their curved trunk. Grown and imported from China, Ficus Retusa has a brown trunk white spots on the trunk. This tree does not need to be near a window as it can take low lighted areas as well. Water the tree 2-3x per week and its fine. Do not worry if you forget to water the tree it will be fine. If the tree were to drop a few leaves, that is the result of the tree trying to bring on new growth.
Approx 25yrs old, Approx 22 inches tall

Several characteristics make this tree very popular for Bonsai uses, including fast growth, ability to grow indoors and not so sensitive to watering mistakes. Most fig trees grow "banyan" roots naturally; this feature is often showcased by styling Ficus in dramatic air-root and root-over-rock styles.

Position: Indoor Bonsai (or outside in summer, if temperatures are above 15 degrees C (59F), preferably lots of light (full sun is no problem, full shade is). Keep the temperature stable. Figs tolerate low humidity levels and dry air with their thick waxy leaves.

Watering: Normal watering. The Ficus is very tolerant of over/under watering. Daily misting to maintain humidity is advised.

Feeding: Twice monthly during summer, every two months in wintertime (unless growth stops).

Pruning: Regular pruning is necessary to remain the tree’s shape. Prune back to 2-4 leaves after 6-8 leaves have grown. Leaf pruning can be used to reduce leaf size, as some Fig species normally grow large leaves.

Repotting: Repot the tree during spring every other year, using a basic soil mixture.

Propagation: Use cuttings during the summer.
